Singapore Math Night
Please join us for a parent education Lower School Singapore Math night on Monday, January 11. The evening will focus on the rationale for using Singapore math, how the math concepts are built upon from year to year, the reasoning behind timed tests, how model drawing is used to help solve word problems, how model drawing prepares students for algebra and how parents can best help students at home. This informational event will be presented by Mrs. Rude and Mrs. Marchand. It will begin at 6:30 and will take place in Room 109. We hope to see you there!
